advantage. political corruption flourishes when democratic institutions are weak or non-existent. china is no exception. in his first major speech china's new leader xi jinping publicly acknowledged that the communist party leadership must put an end to this problem. recent protests across china say that the party leaders are the problem. and one blogger has found an effective way to expose corruption online. >> this collection of unspectacular pictures of government functionaries at official events seems hardly worth a glance. but a second look reveals details that have shocked people across china -- luxury wrist watches that sell for as much 60,000 euros. the upmarket timepieces are hardly affordable on a modest official's salary. everyone knows that -- which is why watches have become symbols of corruption and bribery. this activist has placed hundreds of similar photographs on the internet -- along with the price of the watches. he doesn't want to be recognized because he regularly receives threats from state security. >> i wanted to show these pictures to make people aware of the p

deal, it will be one of the largest ever by chinese investors. china's state owned oil giant c-nook swooped in to acquire nexen for a cool $15 billion. note to the obama administration, it is not happening in a bubble. last year you'll recall the obama administration put off a decision on the excel pipeline, an extension of a pipeline that would connect the oil in alberta to the gulf of mexico and international markets. the democrats killed it because of concerns from environmentalists. the proposed route crossed the aquifer in nebraska and white house and state department officials could have just insisted on rerouting the pipe, but they didn't. a bad move, one that was highly thought to play to the president's base. now that the elections are over, a review of a new route will begin sometime next year. the leakages of that pipe were a minor concern, though it got all the headlines. a more legitimate environmental concern is carbon emissions. processing crude that is mined from the oil sands emits double the emissions of regular drilled oil. but oil sands still -- that still s
